Writing and Blogging Since 2007
After getting a start with a degree in Computer Information Management and working at a college admissions office as a database manager, she became a mom and put her ambitions on hold for a higher calling...nurturing, loving and nourishing my children. her birth experiences channeled a desire to share, what seemed to be, understated options of birthing other than hospitals. Her family grew, so did she. Wholesome, healthy food and eating is a natural extension of pregnancy and breastfeeding writing and Hannah's writing began to reflect holistic health and wellness. She's been writing articles for the past 10 years. Hannah was a contributor to Holistic Parenting Magazine and the MiCommunity Newsletter.

Marketing and Social Media Since 2011...
The Olive Parent began as a blog in 2007 - Originally titled, "It's Your Journey". During the height of the "mom blog" frenzy, Hannah is self-taught and self-made like so many other moms who blogged, how to market and brand yourself. She pored over SEO, HTML tutorials and joined blog clubs to effectively share her message. Like many, mompreneurs, Hannah developed the knowledge, experience, and skill of social marketing before social media became an "industry".

Her unique skill set blessed her with opportunities as a freelance social media manager with a focus on developing, coordination and facilitating product reviews, giveaways, and other events. Notable past clients include Nordic Naturals, Organix South, Eco Lips, and Vitalah.
